HAWTHORNE, NJ - On Tuesday, the Louis Bay 2nd Library and Community Center was the recipient of a $3,000.00 check from Atlantic Stewardship Bank.  Atlantic Stewardship staff presented the donation as part of its tithing program, according to a statement from the library.  "Atlantic Stewardship Bank gives 10% of its annual taxable income to missions, schools, health care groups along with libraries, fire departments, ambulance corps, and civic organizations local to their branches," the library said.

On hand to receive a giant check were Library Director Monica Smith and Library Trustee Diana Connolly.  It was presented by Atlantic Stewardship Assistant Vice President and Branch Manager Franca Iacova, joined with the President and CEO of Atlantic Stewardship Bank, Paul Van Ostenbridge.

The tithing program, according to the Atlantic Stewardship Bank website, has been in place over thirty years.  "Beginning over three decades ago, the Board of Directors at ASB shared 10% of the Bank’s taxable income annually. Our original founders incorporated the principle of tithing, or giving back, into our charter and today our Tithing Program continues to define our mission. It is one of many significant ways that we remain 'faithful to our customers' and the community at large."
